After breaking through in monster fashion last season, Hirving “Chucky” Lozano somehow looks destined for even bigger and better things during his sophomore year in Europe. The 23-year-old Mexican winger already has two goals in three Eredivisie appearances, and now his two goals — including one today — in PSV’s 6-2 aggregate win over BATE Borisov have ensured the club’s participation in the 2018-19 Champions League group stage.
Back on August 21, Chucky scored his first-ever Champions League goal to help PSV build a 3-2 lead over BATE in the first leg. Wednesday, with PSV enjoying a 2-0 lead at Philips Stadion, Chucky put the finishing touches on the win with a blistering run from just inside the opponent’s half followed by a pinpoint strike inside the far post.

According to Transfermarkt, his current market value is $35 million, but if there was any truth to that, every single club on the planet would be gathering its pennies and sending PSV a fax at this moment. The truth is, it’s gonna take a helluva lot more to get the Dutch club to sell at this point, especially with a UCL journey now on the horizon.
